Coconut oil is a great alternative to other cooking oils and can even be used in place of butter or shortening. Coconut oil is about 50% lauric acid, making it easier to digest and metabolize than other fats. Aunt Patty's Organic Coconut Oil has a high smoke point, yet retains a neutral taste. Organic RBD Coconut Oil - RBD stands for "refined, bleached, and deodorized." RBD oil is made from copra (dried coconut kernel). The dried copra is placed in a powerful press with added heat and the oil is extracted. This oil is then refined with further heating and filtering; no chemicals or solvents are used in the extraction process. Unlike our Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, RBD Coconut Oil has no coconut taste or aroma. RBD oil is used for home cooking, commercial food processing, and cosmetic, industrial and pharmaceutical purposes. Food Grade and non-hydrogenated.
